521-523 SUNDERLAND ROAD, WORCESTER BUILD

These two single-family homes are well underway! Your build team will help with projects such as hanging drywall, painting exterior siding, laying the flooring, and more!  Specific tasks vary depending on site progress.

Once complete, these 1,560 square feet homes will have 3 bedrooms and an optional 4th bedroom on the 1st floor, 2 bathrooms and full basement. Located in an accessible area for shopping, schools, parks, and highways, two local low-income families will build strength and stability through affordable homeownership.

ABOUT WOMEN BUILD

Women Build brings the community together to help local low-income women and their families achieve a more stable and secure life through affordable homeownership. Over 75% of local Habitat homeowners are women. Men are welcome to participate!

Teams fundraise or are sponsored (or both!) and then build for a day, which helps contribute to making Habitat homes affordable. Through shelter, we empower!

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FALL 2023 WOMEN BUILD TEAMS AND OUR SPONSORS!

In Fall 2023, five teams committed to fundraising and spending a day building 2 affordable homes on Sunderland Road in Worcester. Thank you for making a difference on behalf of local women and families seeking the stability of an affordable home. Through Shelter, We Empower.
